Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after Son Heung-Min put in a terrific performance against Borussia Dortmund, as Spurs took one step into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-0 win over the Bundesliga leaders.
The South Korean international, who has truly stepped up in the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli, scored a terrific volley against Lucian Favre’s side to open the scoring – his ninth goal against them means he has netted against Dortmund more than any other club throughout his career.
Son’s strike was his 11th goal from the last 16 games, and he has truly emerged from the shadows to become one of Spurs’ most important players.
Most of the north London-based club’s supporters probably feared the worst when Kane and Alli suffered their respective injuries, but the former Bayer Leverkusen forward is helping them forget all about the English duo.
Let’s see how the Spurs supporters reacted on Twitter…
It is impossible to put a price on what Heung-Min Son is worth to this Tottenham Hotspur team.
The South Korean embodies everything you want in a footballer, plays the game with a smile, never complains, enjoys every second playing for our Spurs and always steps up.#THFC #COYS pic.twitter.com/PtOOF2Mkz7

Lifetime contract, stand named after him, maybe a street. The man’s a legend!

Couldn’t agree more, what an absolute credit to @SpursOfficial and the game ?

I’ve had lots of Spurs heroes down the years, and lots I've eulogised. But I don't think anyone else has given me as much sheer joy as Son. It's the smile he plays with – the infectious enthusiasm and sheer love of just being on the pitch.
We all love Sonny! #coys

People are stepping up and growing in the absence of our stars. Winks is taking full responsibility for running the show. Son, of course. Sissoko, who's been magnificent (imagine saying that a year ago). And, like it or not, moaners, Llorente #COYS #THFC

Last night again proved that Son is one of the most underrated players in Europe and Winks is one of the most underrated at Spurs. #coys

Son is good enough to play for one of the best teams in the world and already does. COYS
